Obituary of Peter Harry Owen

Peter Harry Owen, 52, of Keeseville, and more recently of Manchester, England, passed away on Friday, September 28, 2018 after a short but fierce battle with cancer.

He was born in Germany on June 8, 1966, the son of Robert and Elfriede (Pfaff) Owen.

Pete was very Happy-go-lucky with a great zest for life, sharing his enthusiasm with everyone. He took great pleasure in family get-togethers, and any time spent with his children and grandchildren. Pete loved nothing more than time spent with family and friends, a couple of beers, laughter, bonfires and a good joke.

Pete graduated from AVCS, and joined the National Guard right out of school and later enlisted in the Army where he proudly served our country in Desert Storm. In the autumn of 2013 Peter took up courses in the Engineering field of study, in which, after much hard work, he excelled.

Pete met his soul mate Ursula playing an online game. They married in May, 2011 and lived the best years of their lives together sharing a love for cooking, traveling, and political debate, until her untimely death in May, 2018.

Left to Cherish Pete's memory are his children, Rachel (Stan), Robert (Rachel), and Jeremy (Stephanie); step children, Mindy, Ben, Matthew, Natascha (Mike) and Joy; siblings, Mike (Debbie), Herb (Holly), Mark, and Petra (Ron); brother-in-law, Tim; Aunt, Hazel Labounty; eleven grandchildren; many nieces and nephews; and so many friends.

A Service is being held in Manchester, England on October 17, and a celebration of his life will be held in Keeseville NY in the summer of 2019.

Arrangements are in the care of the Hamilton Funeral Home, 124 Clinton Street, Keeseville, 834-7667.
